        What is the municipality of The Hague doing against rat nuisance?

        Before you call in rat control, it is good to check who responsible for controlling rats. The Municipality of The Hague is not always obliged to control rats.

        The Municipality of The Hague is involved in the control of rats in outdoor areas. This is, for example, on the street, in the park or in the (inner) garden of a building of a housing corporation.

        This is how you call in the municipality of The Hague in the event of a rat infestation

        Have you seen rats in the outdoor area? Then it is important to report this quickly to the municipality of The Hague. You can do this online or via the number 6313.

        How do you recognize a rat hole?

        Brown rats like to make a hole in the garden or cellar. Rats often use the same routes. They leave behind abdominal grease due to fat and dirt on the body: dirty, dark spots.

        Gnag damage

        Rats are really rodents, so you probably see gnawing damage too. They gnaw on wood and plastic, but also on aluminum and concrete. Rats can even start a fire if they gnaw on electrical cables.

        Running tracks

        Another signal that tells you that you have rats in the house is his paw – and tail prints. The legs of brown rats leave an oily trail. You can also test this: clean the area well and sprinkle it with a thin layer of flour or talcum powder. Check for walking tracks the next day.

        Other signals

        You can also hear scratching noises in the wall, under the floor or in the attic if there are rats around. And they leave a scent of musk and ammonia. You may also find ripped open food wrappers or burrows in the yard. Those burrows can also be under decking or in the shed.

        How do you tell the difference between rats and mice?

        Were you shocked when a beast swept through your house? ran, but did you find it difficult to tell if it was a rat or a mouse? It is easy to find out whether you are dealing with mice or rats.

        A mouse has larger ears and a longer tail in relation to the body. A rat has larger legs and a larger head in relation to the body. The brown rat (most common species in the Netherlands) has a thicker body and shorter tail.

        Droppings and food scraps

        You can also see the difference in the food scraps. Mice nibble on food, while a rat ‘cuts’ food with its teeth. You can see the difference in the food left behind by the rat.

        The droppings of brown rats are dark brown in color and are wide in the middle and narrow at the ends. They are about ten to twenty millimeters long. The droppings of mice are about three to eight millimeters long, black in color and granular in shape. Rats’ droppings are often clustered together, while mice leave them scattered everywhere.

        Do you like to start the day with a fresh cup of coffee from a nearby coffee shop? Or do you ever go out for lunch in The Hague? Then you must have noticed that you have more and more choice in recent years. And that’s right.

        In 2017 there were 3.

      • in the Netherlands lunchrooms and specialized coffee shops. Now, five years later, there are 3.731 lunchrooms and 1.200 specialized coffee shops. The places where you can get specialized coffeehave almost doubled in those five years in the Netherlands, according to figures from the catering database Datlinq.

        The researchers count a business as a ‘specialized coffee shop’ if there is a wide range of different types of coffees with which you can also eat something as small as a pastry or muffin. A lunch spot is counted as a lunchroom where you eat and pick up sandwiches and small meals during the day. There is no hot menu, or the menu is limited.

        Coffee shops and lunchrooms in The Hague

        But what about The Hague? Have so many new lunchrooms and specialized coffee shops opened here? Ten years ago there were in The Hague 53 lunchrooms and 10 specialized coffee shops. Five years later there were 110 and 64.

        In July 2022 are available in The Hague 110 lunch spots and 94 specialized coffee shops. The Hague has an average of 5.5 coffee shops and lunchrooms per 10. inhabitants. Is that a lot? In Westland there are only 2 and in Delft for example 5.1 per 000. inhabitants, so compared to that city we have many.

        The corona effect

        In 915 and 2021 catering establishments had to turn the doors shut. Many businesses were only open for takeout of food and drinks. Despite this, the number of catering businesses has grown in those years, as have coffee and lunch businesses.

        According to ING economist Katinka Jongkind, there are a few things that may have had an effect on this: “Everyone worked at home and of course wanted to pick up a good cup of coffee and a nice sandwich. In addition, there are also many catering businesses that were able to keep their heads above water thanks to government support.”

        No new apartments

        Unfortunately, there will be no new apartments on the site of the old Conservatory. There will be a new building of the ANWB, this building is probably at the end 2022 finished. In addition to the traffic information and emergency center, there will also be a shop, catering and an auditorium/auditorium. new apartments will probably be built on the site of the old ANWB building on Wassenaarseweg.
